Crisis Mapper PATRICK MEIER speaks to Eoin Drinan about his website, irevolutions.org.
Patrick talks about the evolution of the idea over the previous five years, some of the challenges of crisis mapping including its changes, the positive implications of bridging the time gap using a digital map instead of a physical map and how this feeds into the response time for people in conflicting areas.
He also talks about working on “next generation” platforms by using twitter data sets to extract valuable information, working with establishments such as National Geographic and how “Social Capital” or “Social Bonds”, which are built during disaster response can develop and remain intact after the crisis period has come to an end.
